My friend Kim sent me this link from the blog Oh Happy Day! With a daughter whose hair cut we call “The Anna,” it seemed like a perfect choice to have her dress up as Anna Wintour for Halloween. Emerson and I thought it would be fun to dress up together, so I brushed out a Glinda wig, put on my black comfort sandals and my darkest lipstick to be Grace Coddington.

Things I learned from this experience:

  • Bloggers must bribe their children to do all the adorable shoots that they do. We used M&Ms and even so these are the best pictures we could get in the couple of minutes before it stopped being silly fun for Emerson and became work.
  • It’s hard to be a soft curvy woman and dress up like a slim wirey one. I just look like Old Mother Hubbard with a bad dye job!
  • Wigs are HOT!
  • I don't seem to own a single pair of big plastic sunglasses.  These are old scratched ones and I colored the silver parts black with a Sharpie.
  • Emerson can’t make a “mean” face no matter hard she tries, and she really tried. She saw pictures of Anna Wintour on Google Images and was excited to pretend to be the “fashion lady” and do her stern face, but a happy four year old can only look so stern before she falls into a fit of giggles!
Happy Halloween everyone!

  1. “Adorable” is a word that just doesn’t go with Anna Wintour….so I thought. Bur it’s the only word I can find to describe your little fashion lady 🙂 So so so darn cute and ADORABLE!! 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

  2. Love, love, love this!! Little “Anna” is adorable. And, why aren’t you a redhead in real life? It looks amazing on you.

    1. Thank you so much, but you wouldn’t imagine how much pale makeup I have on to look like The Cod! And the brows were hidden under concealer. I was a redhead before in high school and college and while I can pull it off, it requires a lot of makeup and only wearing certain colors to not look like death warmed over 🙂

  3. Emerson is amazingly ADORABLE! She is a dead ringer for Anna…minus the mean mug! Great job you two!

  4. THIS IS SO AWESOME!!! I knew exactly who you were as soon as I saw you. And Emerson is totally rocking the Anna Wintour look!! This makes me so happy!!

  5. This has got to be the cutest Halloween get up I have ever seen! Emerson and her “stern” look is priceless! And you make a great Grace! Love this!

  6. LOL! I was looking for pictures of Anna Wintour smiling earlier, and it was tough. So no wonder Emerson had a hard time staying so stern and NOT giggling – it’s tough business! Only for the toughest and meanest!

    Y’all look so, so great though. This is just darling.

  7. Oh my gosh, this is the cutest thing ever! She’s a perfect Anna and I’m sure she had fun dressing so fancy! And you look awesome too! Just like “The Cod!”
